Shehbaz Sharif, family indicted in money laundering case

Shehbaz Sharif, family indicted in money laundering case
November 11, 2020

The Jail authorities presented Shehbaz and his son before court as it resumed hearing.

The court indicted Shehbaz Sharif, his son Hamza and other accused, while Shehbaz and other accused denied the charges and opted to contest.

All the accused in the case pleaded not guilty. Shehbaz Sharif, while rejecting allegations of the anti-graft watchdog, said that he is being politically victimized. Admin Judge Jawadul Hassan indicted all the accused and summoned NAB witnesses to record their statements.

Earlier, Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz were brought to the court in an armored vehicle and large number of personnel of police were deployed to avoid any untoward incident.

During the appearance of the PML-N president, the party workers exchanged bitter words with the police personnel. They stopped the armoured vehicle but police used physical force and beat the workers.

On September 29, Shahbaz was arrested by NAB after the Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected his bail in the money laundering case.

The PML-N president was previously arrested on October 5, 2018 in another case pertaining to Ramzan Sugar Mills and Ashiana Housing Scheme. He was in the anti-graft watchdog’s custody when the inquiry into money laundering was authourised.
